19 June 2023-20 June 2023

1000 ENGINE RALLY 2023 Well its different it was cancelled in 2022 but lets hope it will return


Astle Park, Holmes Chapel Rd., Macclesfield, England SK11 9AD, United Kingdom

Well how do I describe this? It’s a collection of people who have preserved many different types of engine – some small and some massive.  They get together in a field and run them. It also has a good turn out of stalls, steam engines, cars, bikes, tractors etc. It’s different and cheap, so why not give it a go?


The most unusual thing we have seen there.



 July 2023 TBC

Classic and Vintage vehicle Rally at the British Iron works near Oswestry, Shropshire, SY11 4JH


Lots of other stuff to see and do too. The Oswestry Food Festival is on the same weekend


They run a free bus from the show to the town centre festival, which also stops at a local castle






August Bank Holiday Monday 11.00am every year

Cilcain show. ( Date to be confirmed but usually August Bank Holiday Monday)

This is an excellent small village show.  It is a short drive from Mold and a handy stop off point whilst in the area
